Interesting citations

"The majority of web-based applications have three main attributes that usually differentiate them from more traditional software applications, they are: (a) network intensive, (b) content driven and (c) continuously evolving; these attributes have a profound impact on the way Web Engineering is conducted [22]." (Pressman, 2000)

Pressman's thoughts on web-based development echo my experiences at Allette Systems. Network intensive corresponds to the need for interoperability amount different applications, content driven is the complexity associated with the various data transformations and continuously evolving can be associated the need for compliance to standards that existing web based applications are expected to adhere to.
